      Default X3 TC vs. Reunion?

      Hi, I'm back after not posting for a while and i have recently got X3 TC, but I'm yet to try it :P.(Bloody big manual, I thought it was a fancy cover thingy)
      Anyways i wanted to ask if you think X3 TC is better than than X3 reunion with XTM on, I've been hearing TC is all unbalanced and buggy.
      O_O
      Thanks, adal8or.

      Hi Guys,
      an interesting point.... however as has been said in other threads, i feel it is a little unfair to compare a modded game with a vanilla one, just my opinion

      If we are comparing X3:R without XTM to X3:TC then for me they are about the same, although at the time i think i liked X3:R better except for the bloody cut scene missions which drove me nuts as it was a fresh feel.

      I think i will decline to vote on this one

      I have to agree with Kevso, and for the same reasons, so I will not be voting either..

      however, I will say this... X3:TC has much greater potential for modding than X3:R had... and for this reason, I believe that there are going to be some really awesome mods out by this time next year, all using the X3:TC engine... and some of the ideas floating about are very creative too (and I'm not just talking about XTM on TC), so keep watching TXU, I think it's going to be a VERY interesting 2009!!

      When it comes to a straight face-off between X3:R and X3:TC, X3:TC is way better content-wise and is also more and easier moddable than X3:R. The new Corps, Subplots, Missions, ships and Stations bring more life into the universe, BUT when you compare X3:TC and X3:XTM, X3:TC will lose IMO, since it contains alot of ships and stations from XTM, but not the spirit from it. This is my opinion on this (some others will say it otherwise, so you gonna have to check out both).


      The new Valhalla looks like as it was build from parts of the Tyr, Odin and Aegir, which looks really off. I cant really imagine, why the Devs from Egosoft havent taken the XTM-Valhalla.

      Ok thanks.
      Just installed TC and tried the terran start.
      Its a good job if found about classic controls(shift-N) because the new flight system seems a bit poop, steering with arrow keys? O_O.
      Then i came to the Xenon attack. SUPER LAG AHH RUNN.
      What will happen if i get a huge fleet vs. fleet battle?
      Overall I think it has quite an atmosphere though, there is more mystery in it.(Might be because I didn't play X3: R through to the end :P)
      Anyway whats trading like? Anything different?

      i think X3TC has a bit more depth and feel to the story missions, but i have to say that some of the ships in TC are a bit of a let down compared to XTM, so i agree with mapper on that note sould of used some ships from XTM instead of create their TRY to create their own. I personnally dont know what they were thinking with the new flight system cos that doesnt suit these games. Also
      adal8or my game was laggy when i started out but if you try a couple of mods it might clear things up abit. im gonna have to vote both same on different aspects of each game.

      It's not quite fair for this competition, just like a well decorated apartment compare to an newly built empty house. Which one do you like more? Let's wait and see what happen in XTC (hehe..., I cannot wait now).

      Personally, I think the visual engine of the XTC has been upgraded and perform better (though my FPS is poor...). Cannot tell where exactly but the behavior of light are more smooth revealing more details than X3:R. It should be worth to enhance my PC now, a good reason.
